Stayed in the Viking last week. Excellent for a business traveller. The Hotel is close to the Motorway and parking is very convenient. The Staff were very friendly. The hotel seems to be relatively modern and the spacious bedrooms are quiet probably due to the concrete floors and walls. Wifi is excellent but the TV choice is limited and the... More

Staff were fine, hotel was fine, nothing to get excited about. Felt like a purpose built business hotel. Wouldn't call it a holiday type hotel. It isn't in walking distance of anything except garages and chain stores. I didn't think the quality of the food was anything to write home about. I didn't enjoy the quality of the mattress either.... More

Ridiculous painting going on in the hotel during peak season. Very disturbing especially with young children and the smell of paint. Sheer madness. It's not fair in guests, painting should be done during off peak season.
